MADALGO Summer School on GEOMETRIC DATA STRUCTURES

From MADALGO comes word of a summer school on geometric data structures, looks like fun!

Here is the official announcement:

MADALGO Summer School on GEOMETRIC DATA STRUCTURES

August 16-19, 2010, Aarhus, Denmark

www.madalgo.au.dk/datastructures2010

OVERVIEW AND GOAL

Geometric data structures are methods of efficiently storing and querying data in two or more dimensions. Working with geometric data often requires the use of specialized and fundamentally geometric techniques. The goal of the summer school is to provide an in-depth introduction to some of the key techniques in geometric data structures, while highlighting a number of open problems.

LECTURES

The school will be taught by experts in the area of geometric data structures:

  • Timothy Chan (University of Waterloo)
  • Sariel Har-Paled (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
  • John Iacono (Polytechnic Institute of New York University)
  • Mihai Patrascu (AT&T)

PARTICIPATION

The summer school will take place on August 16-19, 2010 at Center for Massive Data Algorithmics (MADALGO) in the Department of Computer Science, University of Aarhus, Denmark.

The school is targeted at graduate students, as well as researchers interested in an in-depth introduction to geometric data structures.

The capacity of the summer school is limited. Prospective participants should register using the online registration form available at www.madalgo.au.dk/datastructures2010 as soon as possible. Registering graduate students must also have their supervisor send a letter confirming their graduate student status directly to madalgo@madalgo.au.dk; the subject line of the email should be ‘student_last_name/SS_2010/confirming’. Registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis and will close on July 1, 2010.

Registration is free; handouts, coffee breaks, lunches and a dinner will be provided by MADALGO and the Aarhus University.

ORGANIZING COMMITTEE

  • Lars Arge (MADALGO)
  • Gerth S. Brodal (MADALGO)
  • John Iacono (Polytechnic Institute of New York University)
  • Else Magård (MADALGO)
  • Sara Ølholm (Aarhus University)

ABOUT MADALGO

Center for MAssive Data ALGOrithmics is a major basic research center funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. The center is located at the Department of Computer Science, University of Aarhus, Denmark, but also includes researchers at CSAIL, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the US, and at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and at Frankfurt University in Germany. The center covers all areas of the design, analysis and implementation of algorithms and data structures for processing massive data (interpreted broadly to cover computations where data is large compared to the computational resources), but with a main focus on I/O-efficient, cache-oblivious and data stream algorithms.
